Massive romaine lettuce recall linked to California

The patients are between the ages of five and 93, and there are more females than males.

Many people who get sick in most outbreaks never seek medical attention so the number of cases is never known, said Howard Njoo, Canada's deputy chief public-health officer.

The Ministry of Health and Wellness further advises the public that if they suspect that they have Romaine lettuce originating from the U.S. stored in their refrigerator, that they bag the lettuce, along with any food that it may have come into contact with, and discard these items.

Tracing a person's food history involves interviewing them about what they ate and where, Njoo said. Romaine from that region was being pulled from the shelves of stores to reduce the risk of infection of customers.

The newly released statement comes after the head of the FDA, Dr. Scott Gollieb announced the lettuce most likely came from California due to growing and harvesting patterns.

The three most recent illnesses happened between late October and November 1, the same time frame as the previous cases.

Apple acquires yet another AI startup, Silk Labs
Lattice Data uses an AI inference engine to take unstructured, dark data and turn it into more usable and structured information. The company was founded only in 2015 with former Mozilla CTO, Andreas Gal being one of the co-founders of the company.

The agency urged consumers who have the product at home to throw it away, and told restaurants to not serve it.

This is at least the third outbreak of E. coli linked to leafy greens in the United States and Canada in the last two years. Seventeen people were hospitalized and one person died.

They should also wash any fridge drawers, containers or countertops where lettuce may have been stored with soap and warm water.

Officials said E. coli had sickened 17 people in Quebec, four in Ontario and one in New Brunswick.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shared information about the outbreak Tuesday, just days before Thanksgiving dinners would grace tables across America.
